FIA developments since the last approval rating


The FIA had little to say about the situation in Bahrain which led to the postponement of the first race of 2011.

In a letter to the media last week Todt said: “As you all know, on advice from the Bahrain Motor Federation we have had to skip the inaugural Grand Prix in that country due to severe social unrest.

“We have asked our Bahraini colleagues to inform us by May 1st on whether the race can take place. We wish then well in their ongoing attempts to resolve their issues.”


Nor has the FIA shown any sign of intervening in the dispute between Renault and Lotus, who are locked in dispute over the right to use the name ‘Lotus’.

Despite the confusion, the FIA appear content to refer to both teams using the name ‘Lotus’. Their 2011 F1 season guide refers to them as “Lotus Renault GP” and “Team Lotus”.

The high court will begin to hear the dispute between the two teams tomorrow.

Circuits Commission

The FIA Circuits Commission is to examine F1 tracks “to identify the possibility of increasing the opportunities for overtaking.”

Tyre testing and safety car rules

In order to allow Pirelli to develop new tyres, a new rule announced earlier this month will allow teams to use extra sets of development tyres at Fridays on race weekends.

There have also been some changes to the safety car rules, and special pit lane visits for race track marshals, explained in the link below.
